BIG DATA- opportunities and challenges in construction, an event co organised by Asite, Construct IT and CIOB hosted by Google Campus. The aim of the event was to explore what are the current; opportunities, benefits and challenges in use of BIG DATA in construction informatics?

During the event we provided a discussion lead forum that brought together an understanding of the concepts, opportunities and challenges of BIG DATA in the construction and IT industry.

The day was enriched with discussions from industrial and academic experts who explored their application and potential within the construction industry.



One of the main speakers from the day was Asite's very own CEO Tony Ryan.
